Looking for someone to snuggle up with this Valentine’s Day? Look no further than Kris, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. He’s a 1-year-old male Chihuahua from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Kris is already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Kris’s Tale

My name is Kris. I am only a year old and weigh about 8 pounds. I came to the rescue after I lost my family. I mean really, I don’t know where they are. Can you be my new family?

I am quiet, playful, and loving. I like other dogs… yes, even the bossy broad ones. Actually, I haven’t met anyone I didn’t like. I am delicately built and prance around. Is that ok with you? I would rather potty outside but need an adjustment time with you so we can work out how I tell you when I need to go. See, I don’t talk a lot so sometimes you may not notice me. Can I say I am not fond of going out in the cold, rain or snow? I will, I just don’t really like it.

If you’d like to learn more or adopt Kris, please visit Dogs As Family.
